I've found that lighting in the studio is crucial in the drawing process of silverpoint. As the sun moves around outside my studio, I find myself in terrible trouble, desperate to try to see the lines I've made in silver. The artificial lightening is no help either. It's to bright. I could not see to draw Monday about 4:00. I pick up my drawing and did a walk about. I was walking all around the studio, looking for the right lighting. One spot might work. Otherwise, I'll only be able to work a few hours during the day. The lighting also, brought on my TN (trigeminal Neuralgia) and my Hemiplegic Migraines. So I've not felt well the last few days. I'm all better now.
